Call out to all the lovelies here who have a lapband, have had problems with a slippage AND have x rays of it. Does it look anything like the second x ray? The first x ray was done 2 years ago when my pain was, surprise surprise, right where that bottom loop of tubing was laying. Notice the lapband looks like a rectangular shape. (Completely normal.) The second x ray was done a couple of weeks ago, after my revision surgery, and my pain is now, again no surprises, located right at the bottom of that lower loop of tubing. Notice the different orientation of the lapband ... you can see through the middle of it. Now, I know a slipped band will have a circular appearance on x ray but this is oval, not circular, so I'm not sure if it's slipped or not, so just want to know if anyone who's had a slipped band has seen it like this on x ray, or, if anyone has been told that this is also a completely normal band position. For the record, after my revisional surgery to shorten my tubing it's now 6cm longer. Notice also that the connector is different, confirming that at least some of my tubing has been replaced. I'm burning mad right now. ps. I have an appointment to see my GP regarding the appearance of my lapband in the second x ray, and also to see what can be done regarding the way I was treated at my post op lap band revision appointment with the surgeon last week but just wanted to find out if anyone here has any first hand experience with this.
